Hawaii Island (The Big Island)
Hawaii Island's crown jewel of "white sand" beaches.
Hapuna means "spring" or "pool" in Hawaiian and when you get a look at the beautiful turquoise water and white sand, you'll understand how it got its name. The largest of Hawaii Island’s white sand beaches, Hapuna Beach has made repeat appearances on numerous international Top Ten lists. Hapuna also offers consistently good conditions for swimming, bodyboarding, sunbathing and snorkeling. As with many beaches in Hawaii, the winter months can bring larger and sometimes dangerous waves. Always be conscious of ocean conditions.
Park admission is $5.00 for non-residents. There's adequate parking, food vendors, picnic areas, restrooms and showers as well as a lifeguard on duty. A-frame shelters are available for overnight camping. Click Here to Reserve
